Half Way To 70

 My husband was very kind to point out exactly how old I turned on my birthday last weeek (I'll be kind and not tell what he's half way to), it seems not so old some days and very old on others, I don't get hung up on numbers (cos that's all they are really) but what really annoys me and seems greatly unfair is spots and wrinkles?! What is that all about?? Surely if I am old enough for one I should not still be sprouting the other?

I got some lovely gifts and cards from those special people in my life.

My new favourite mug;

A brilliant book bought on the recommendation of the lovely Jenny and a new work mug from my colleagues;

30 minute knits is fab (and it was bought for a bargain price via ebay) and the children have lined up projects for me already. I managed to knit this little angry bird inspired chap for Nathaniel while we snuggled on Saturday afternoon;

My littlest sister brought me a huge chocolate cake she had baked for tea. I got to go to work in my PJs as we were 'doing something funny for money'. My very dear friend bought me some tea towels, I have been asking for new tea towels for over a year and of all the ears I have nagged she came through, I now have six beautiful, bright tea towels not be ashamed off! My friend Gil (my Knit&Stitch companion) gave me a huge bag of beautiful yarns (which will get their own post soon), she said as they were destash we couldn't really call them a present but they made me squeal with delight!

So all in all I don't mind much being half way to seventy!!

PS: Thank you to everyone who wished me well after my last post. I am still full of snot and sore throaty but can manage to get showered without wanting to cry. I am coming out the other side (so to speak) now, it is the worst lurgy I have had in  a very very long time!!

Happy birthday! Halfway to 70 is practically teenaged from where I'm sitting :-)

Yes, I am with you on the spots front - what is that all about???

Happy birthday you spring chicken!! I'd love to be halfway to 70 rather than halfway to 82!! Glad to hear you are feeling better too. xx

OMG, I've just worked out what I'm halfway to, and let's just say very few people live that long!

Happy Birthday!

35 is nothing and you look much younger. I'm 43 and act much younger :)
Happy birthday

I can assure you that half way to seventy is young especially when you look nothing like that! (I'm half way to 112 this year)
